Sweet nothings: Hershey pregame

Will be following along with tonight’s game, when not watching to see if the Cubs can fly something more than a ‘W’ for the first time in 71 years. I suspect Alan will be following that even more

Getting very hard to stay: Lehigh Valley pregame

Dodging the DDoS to bring you… Will be otherwise occupied for tonight’s game in Allentown. (Gibson vs. Stolarz, says Bob Rotruck.) Listen to Alan on the AHL Live for free audio and pay-per-view;

Game 76 of 79 or greater: Providence pregame

Eamon McAdam makes his pro debut, and a few changes on defense to go with one up front (which result in a couple of familiar or semi-familiar lines, except the one that moves Tanner Fritz to the
